Matali Crasset Is A One-Woman Ikea Kids Department

That desk Matali Crasset did for Balouga turns out to be the tip of her kid-friendly design iceberg. At the Stedelijk in Amsterdam Hertogenbosch [?] there's a whole museumful of playful, sherbet-colored furniture and architecture in an exhibition called "Spring Harvest."

There's a playhouse fitted with chairs and tables, and a loft/pod/playroom deal with some bright-but-seemingly-unreachable storage on top. And hot pink carpet. Without a kid for scale, I can't tell if it's actually for children, or for the35-year-old Hello Kitty otaku demographic. But I'm all for using an igloo made out of pop-riveted translucent garbage cans as a kid's room. At least until I have to Swiffer it.

Matali Crasset, "Spring Harvest", Nov 26-Feb 25, WTF, where's the website?? If a show opens and closes in BF Holland without a website, does it make a sound? No [sm-s.nl Images via pan-dan]
